Houses to Purchase for 1 - Who Wants to Buy?

Who wants to buy a house?
Let's get a nice group of DDFers and make a nice vacation spot in Italy. You just have to agree to remodel the home.
If only we had jury duty every day, then we'd have time to write trip reports about the entire universe.

"But there's a catch. The new owners must commit to refurbish their choice of the crumbling 40- to 150-square meter dwellings within three years, at a cost starting from 15,000 (about $17,200).
They'll also need to cough up a 5,000 security deposit that will be returned once the restyle is complete."

If 20000 DDFers gives a Dollar it will work as well!

Now that's an idea! How are we going to work out the time sharing? I feel like 20 DDFers giving 1000 is more practical

Something tells me the locals won't be too inviting. Second I highly doubt they would sell it for a bunch of people to vacation in, they want residents.

Remodeling will probably cost more than 20k to make it livable. But still sound like a cool idea
